    Open Mags (9mm)- Need advice

    I have two 140mm STI mags, one STI 170mm with UP internals and Dawson basepad and one stock 170mm MBX. The MBX one is the only one I trust 100%. Has worked flawlessly out of the box and is my main mag. They also hold 30 rounds of 9mm which is a big plus. They are expensive tho, at least here...

    Match video Open A, request for feedback

    Thanks! My biggest advantage is shooting on the move so I try to utilize it as much as I can, sometimes too much... Main reason is me losing the dot, especially during this match. The excessive dot loss in this match was due to being a bit ill but I do have the same problem even when I'm ok. I got a great tip for transition dryfire training and will start that as soon as my left wrist heals (tore a ligament a month or so ago). I think I'm losing the dot because I haven't really trained transitions properly. Good point! I haven't had to consider the upright position too much since open pistols don't really recoil... I've kinda seen it before but now that you mention it I really notice it, especially on stage 2. I try to teach the stance Travis Haley explains in one of his videos, but I seem to forget it myself as soon as I'm doing something else than training static drills. I'll try to remember to keep my center of gravity low! My A-percentage has declined a lot after switching to major, gonna have to try and focus a bit more

    Do you focus on the dot or the target?

    This is very interesting, this is also a lot closer to what I do although pretty much unconsciously. I've always read people talking about seeing sights lift but I haven't gotten a proper hang of it. Thanks for explaining!

    how do you call your shots if you don't see your sights lift? Just by feel?

    Dry Firing During Make Ready - DQ?

    Looking at the new rule proposals for the next GA, it seems that dryfire is allowed (a clarification has been added to note that dryfiring at ground is ok, thus I think it is ok now too). But yeah, the sight picture is correct. I've noticed that it makes for a better run if you don't think too much at LAMR, just get the gun ready and nod

    What do you mean with full ipsc? AFAIK we don't limit the LAMR at IPSC

    Dry Firing During Make Ready - DQ?

    I don't think dry firing at LAMR is forbidden in IPSC. This addition exists in the rules proposal for the next GA: I interpret this as a clarification and not a new rule, thus implying that it is in fact allowed. Also, sight picture means aligning the sights with a target. Aiming at ground is OK
  8. Single stack too?! I though this madness covered only production!

    Budget or Fancy?

    Open guns specifically? I've heard both here and recently in person that steel grips aren't good on open guns, but make a helluva difference in standard/limited More weight low and at the back, countering muzzle rise. Drawback apparently is sluggish transitions and weight.
  10. If it doesn't, race holster time!

    Production Division (Firearm Question)

    If you take a mixed assortment of shooters and give them a mixed assortment of guns, the best shooter wins. If you take the very best shooters who have very similar skill levels, the one with the best gun wins. (very elaborate statement just to make a point) But then again, I definitely recommend buying a high end gun but you still must realize that practice is what makes you suck less. The high end gun on the other hand, lets you focus on the fundamentals, forgetting small magazines, bad trigger pull and strong muzzle flip. Also, the high end guns usually are just more enjoyable to shoot, making range time more fun! Win-win am I right? I started in open div and have progressed far faster than friends who started in production. I have also tried production div with loaner guns for fun and the results speak for themselves.
  13. Probably in a vast majority of cases, the stage will be zero anyways due to misses and FTE's so no point to count the hits for everyone for the benefit of just a few others.
  14. At least in IPSC this would NOT have been a DQ. "All firearms must be serviceable and safe". In an event where the gun goes off by itself, the shooter must inform the officials immediately and give the firearm for inspection. If the said shot WAS the fault of the firearm, no DQ and the competitor and attempt to fix the firearm. If the gun can't be fixed, it is unserviceable and unsafe -> new gun or go home. If the shot was NOT the fault of the firearm -> DQ.
